    it’s good to hear she’s gonna do something other than rom-coms. which are so sickening to hear nowadays. drama is always better for a career

  • Vincennes

    I hope that Jennifer Garner does more movies from now on.

  • Jen is not doing this movie

    I don’t think that this is happening… more made up stuff.. just like how
    Jon Hamm had to shoot down the fact that the internet rumors about
    him playing Superman..aka Ben played George Reeves he played
    the original Superman..Get it now.. And now another The Town character is doing a movie..with the directors wife..

  • lj

    Jeremy just did the Town with Ben Affleck which comes out tomorrow so it could be possible. He has three films in pre-production and one more listed on

  • Lola

    Sounds like every other movie that comes on Lifetime.

  • lexy hates bilson

    Go Jen!!! She’s such a beautiful and talented actress!!

  • Jodie

    Glad to hear she’s moving on from rom-coms!

  • Very Good

    Would love to see Jen show some acting chops. We haven’t really got to see her go there in her acting. Just playing the good girl is getting very boring. Although do love her in her other genre, action. This could be a nice change.

    What??? not another Jen Garner movie, has anyone seen “catch and release”,”the invention of lying” and “ghosts of girlfriend’s past”, she is terrible in all of them how come she keeps on getting roles??/ i say we should retire her already.

  • Greg

    I can’t stand Jen’s fake voice and bad acting. I think she milks her family image to get roles or maybe her b.lo.w jobs are still good.

  • liz

    This chick is so ugly, her face is so odd specially her cheekbones and eyes. She reminds me of a lizard ugh!! But her acting is even worse than her looks.

  • Len

    Are u kidding me? Jen is not a serious actress, she is below average, and so annoying, I wonder what hollywood is thinking? can’t they find good actresses?, I say they should give the opportunity to new talent.

  • Bebe

    Is he gay??

  • Cheyenne

    She has such an understated *non* Hollywood beauty (very far removed from all those cookie cutter types) that is absolutely captivating and I hope she does switch to some more meaty type roles in the future. She is so talented and doing rom coms are not where she can show case her talents as an artist.

    Because she has the face of a million characters is what enables her to infact be such a good actress. Here’s hoping she gets a chance to really show off her skills. She has always worked with first time directors and etc and this looks like the case here. She really needs a chance to work with some really seasoned writers/directors who not only have the ability to bring out and demand the best from their subjects. JJ Abrahams for instances had that ability. He really got some great performances from this woman. She seems to respect him and learned a lot from him. She hasn’t been that lucky with her big screen career. Anyway, she deserves to show what she can do

    I’m a big fan and I can wait until she lands that role that really puts her on the map. Very talented country girl just waiting for that chance to shine.

  • Cheyenne

    There is some person(s) out there in cyberspace who is on a smear campaign to try and sully this woman’s name and reputation

    Sometimes I think this person is someone who knew her on a personal level at one time (her ex husband for instance) who keeps changing their name and sprewing hatred for Jen all over the internet.

    I don’t think it’s Michae Vartan, because he has moved on with his life and would not stoop to do something so immature and low down.

    For the love of God, please STOP THE INSANITY.

    Cheyenne nobody is trying to smear Jennifer, what bloggers are only saying she is a bad actress which is true. How many Oscars has she won?, or Golden Globes?, you are the one in a campaign to promote her because every time there’s a post on her you make numerous comments to praise her, You really sound like her Public Relations people.

  • Cheyenne

    FYI Ms Garner won a Golden Globe for her performance in Alias as well as Screen Actors Guild award and was nominated for an emmy. What makes you gualified to pass judment or speak with any authority as to her acting ability? Wise up as you and your other namesakes making the claim that she can’t act are clearly not famililar with her career or just being narrow minded and unfair in order to promote your own personal agenda. I stand by my previous comments and convictions so there, it is what it is.

  • Simmer

    Cheyenne, now I am really sure you are part of her Public Relations team or better yet you might be her.

  • Anon

    cheyenne you are a Public Relations Nut.

  • BenAffleckSucks!!!

    Vicky,Greg,liz and Len are the smae person. I mean seriously, each bad comment has a distance of 2 minutes from the previous one.
    Vicky:7:54 pm
    Greg:7:56 pm
    liz:7:59 pm
    Len:8:03 pm
    And each comment centers on her acting abilities and looks!
    Seriously my friend you need to get a life!

  • BenAffleckSucks!!!

    meant to type: the same person

  • Cheyenne

    Right you are #21 & 22. I wish I was on anybody’s PR team. I hear that is good money to be made. Sorry, but I am just a fan of Jen and as such, very familiar with her career and can’t stand to see her or anybody else get picked on and bashed out of pure jealousy or some such nonsense.

    I defend the honor of those I admire and that’s the bottom line.
